    Looks like you were running a bit lean...


    Someone else's pistons looked like that, after the self-proclaimed 'God of Tuning' tuned their car and it turned out it was WAY too lean...

    some of you know what I'm talking about :ph34r:

    But yeah, at any rate, unideal air/fuel conditions can, from time to time, cause chunks of your pistons to free themselves from the tyrannical rule of the piston and casually make an exit through your exhaust.

    we call that a product of detonation. That is either a really lean tune or a high timing problem. both of which would happen by ricers lookin for LEET CHEEP POWER
